Precision Planting – SmartFirmer
Tech Specs: Precision Planting’s SmartFirmer measures adequate moisture, temperature, absence of residue, and uniformity in real-time in the furrow and displays them on the 20/20 in-cab display. Something as simple as seeing the presence of residue in the furrow and making a row cleaner more aggressive to remove it can pay big dividends in consistency of stand.

Growers typically dig a few seeds per field when planting to determine furrow conditions, leaving the planting condition of millions of seeds in the furrow unknown, until now. SmartFirmer allows operators to know for each seed what environment it is in and if a change needs to be made to improve that environment.
